    Fight for the living, mourn for the dead - by Tracie Edward Palmer/Update/OSSTF/CALM via BC Carpenters Union
    The majority of injuries are slips, trips and falls, but there are also indoor air quality concerns, infectious diseases, violence and repetitive strain injuries. Often the results are minor but sometimes recurring and occasionally they can be debilitating. Not only should the focus be on prevention, but also the obligation to ensure the dignity of workers after a workplace injury through accommodation and adequate compensation.

    On April 28, we renew a commitment to prevent workplace injuries and illness by encouraging provincial and federal govern to support violence, harassment and ergonomic regulations.

    Contact your local labour council and attend a Day of Mourning event. Ask your employer to lower flags to half-mast and observe a minute of silence on April 28.
